Reviews For The Hidden Lady
I adore this portrayal of Elendil: so human. I love that he studied and just didn't do it because his father told him to.
I really appreciated that your Elendil isn't seen by his men as the hero rescuing him but as that (insert expletive) who made them row the boats out in the heat - I loved that his wife may or may not have played a part in their salvation (but was definitely a strong character), that the reason for their salvation is sort of left open, and that even Elendil acknowledges here that myth will play a part in reshaping the story.
You bring those great and terrible moment to life here - I loved the prayer to Uinen - it ties in with Elendil and his people being called The Faithful, and also shows their desperation; they have nothing else to try, and they still believe.
I love how you left their salvation open to different interpretations in this and, especially, how you acknowledged the role myth would have played in this. The maelstrom scene was terrifying and gave me such a sharp image of the scene; I was leaning over my keyboard and pop-eyed, even though I knew how it would end! :D A lovely piece, Rhapsody ... and some of the language! *swoons* You've outdone yourself with this one, m'dear! :)
